    Sony Sues Kevin Butler

    Everyone who has a PS3 seems to have a boner for this guy so this might interest y'all!

    Sony's Comment:
    Sony Computer Entertainment America filed a lawsuit against Bridgestone and Wildcat Creek, Inc. on September 11. The claims are based on violations of the Lanham Act, misappropriation, breach of contract and tortious interference with a contractual relationship. We invested significant resources in bringing the Kevin Butler character to life and he’s become an iconic personality directly associated with PlayStation products over the years. Use of the Kevin Butler character to sell products other than those from PlayStation misappropriates Sony’s intellectual property, creates confusion in the market, and causes damage to Sony.

    Yeah we have been talking about that here. Jerry screwed up big time by being in a nintendo promotion. He will probably think twice about doing this a second time.

    This was always going to happen.

    KB is Sony's property. The fact that Jerry Lambert plays KB is irrelevant.

    As is the fact that Jerry played the character in the Bridgestone commercial more low-key than KB. The ad was obviously intended to create controversy as Sony's PR figurehead was seen to be playing and enjoying a competitor's product. This shone a bad light on the Sony brand as it could be construed that the Wii is better than the PS3, as endorsed by KB.

    Stupid Jerry, just plain stupid. NDA's exist for a reason.

    It was only a matter of time before this would happen. He was playing the Wii in the Bridgestone commercial, which is basically endorsing the product. That is a very stupid mistake to make and now he'll have to deal with Sony.

    That's where you're wrong, Trains didn't voice his opinion of how Sony eats dicks and the PS3 sucks donkey gonads compared to the WiiU.

    Doesn't mean he's not thinking about it.

    I'm not very surprised. I was expecting this when I saw the ad.

    I don't get why Trains is getting bashed, he just posted valid news, he didn't say "Kevin Butler sucks bawls and shud dai, Reggie from Nintendo is better."

    I guess that big paycheck they gave Jerry is going to his attorney and more to get out this jam
    It's only common sense this would have happened if you switched sides lol

    Jerry really screwed up, you can't do something like this and not expect backlash.

    Agreed. No need to bash Trains...lately. He's posting some decent threads and there's nothing wrong with this one.
